Sandalwood Community Food Pantry
celebrates 10 years of operation
Dr. Reverend Nannette Pierson, Founder and Director of the Sandalwood Community Pantry in Hilton Head, says that serving people is her greatest joy. She opened her pantry 10 years ago in an apartment complex's community room made available by the Beaufort Housing Authority. She fed five families on that first day, and within a year, she was feeding 350 people. "We're feeding close to 800 people now throughout the year," she said. "My only desire was to serve those who hunger for food, water and a renewed spirit. Hunger hurts. Hunger denies dignity, depletes energy and thus one's potential."

Sandalwood Community Food Pantry is one of the 300 partner agencies that receive food from the Lowcountry Food Bank.
